Our "Christmas Storehouse"

What shall we give at Christmas time? And what shall we celebrate? The Christian Scientist looks on Christmas as an opportune time to consider the truths he has learned concerning the Christ.

In "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 159) Mary Baker Eddy speaks of her "Christmas storehouse." Of it she writes, "In this chamber is memory's wardrobe, where I deposit certain recollections and rare grand collections once in each year." Continuing, she gives a few of the thoughts that filled her consciousness on one Christmas: " 'O glorious Truth! O Mother Love! how has the sense of Thy children grown to behold Thee! and how have many weary wings sprung upward! and how has our Model, Christ, been unveiled to us, and to the age!' "
